Infected

About a month ago I watched Zombieland with my sister and one of my best friends. As I saw people being infected with the zombie disease, I thought of the fact that I have been infected with the disease of sin and it will end in death.

The Incredible Hulk gives us a nice picture of the evil that lives within us when he gets angry—the beast within is released, and he does things that he does not want to do. An even better picture might be a werewolf, who helplessly turns into a predator.

In The Lord of the Rings movies there is a scene in which Bilbo Baggins sees The Ring around Frodo’s neck. The depiction is fantastic. Bilbo is absolutely horrified by his own behavior.

“The Good I want to do I do not do, and the Evil I do not want is what I keep doing. Who will save me from this body of Death?” [Romans 7:15–25]
